Westlake Village, California Headshot - North Natural Light.

For centuries, artists have understood the benefits of painting with north light which has helped produce some of the greatest paintings in history. We have all heard that north facing windows are optimum for an artist’s studio, but why? The same applies to photography.

 

North light, commonly known as reflected light or indirect light, produces cool and controlled value shifts.North light basks the subject matter and photographing in the same cool atmosphere.

This helps the artist have far greater control over values, contrasts and subtle color changes within a photograph.

We had the pleasure of having Samantha a beautiful french girl in our studio.
